the madness, but here is what he is up against. 24 michigan lawmakers are acting on behalf of alec that conservative group that drafts gun legislation for lawmakers, and alec has been bank rolled by the nra. michigan's alec chair cosponsored the extreme gun legislation that rammed through the house and senate last week. but this is not just about michigan. michigan has been passing some crazy bills these last few weeks, but this is much broader. alec's legislation has been used across the country to weaken gun laws. since 2009, 99-nra-backed alec laws have passed in 36 states. all of those states are states where alec-backed gun legislation has passed. and as a result gun safety laws across the country have gotten incredibly watered down. in arizona you need a permit to cut hair but not to carry a concealed. in mississippi concealed weapons permits last longer than driver's licenses. iowa it's easier to sell a gun than lemonade. in arkansas it takes less time to buy a gun than to qualify for food stamps. not only do we have weaker gun laws than other countries, w

and functional rates. he decided to throw in with the alec, american legislative exchange council for weakening labor. if you take a look at those that were passed in michigan you will find verbatim polls from alec's model legislation. this is not a local michigan initiative. what snyder and his legislative allies have done is tap into a national model for weakening labor at the polling place. labor rights have been harmed. it's going to be deeply harmful to working people at least in the short-term. the key thing storemember is even if you are not a union member, aren't a working person democracy has been assaulted. it's what werearping the discourse so that republicans in 2014 have an easier time getting elected. >> bill: no. no. absolutely. i was going to ask you about that. i mean the way this was done seems to me to be the least democratic way possible. no public hearings, no testimony. no nothing. they just rammed this through. >> the best way to understand it is just a blatantly. it isn't just thely. snyder is the governor who said he would
